I knew that I needed to do something to get better results with Twitter. I had never used this social media platform before getting an account for my business, so I was trying to learn how to best utilize it for my needs. I discovered that the only thing that would do this would be to get more followers, views and likes. I thought I was doomed until a friend told me to find out more at buytwitternow.net on how to improve my Twitter numbers. She had used the same site to build up her own numbers, so it was nice knowing that I could also ask her questions after looking at the site.
It seemed simple enough. Continue reading
I am officially a married man. My beautiful wife Joanna and I got married last week. So far, the marriage has been nothing less than great. I moved from United States to the country of Singapore to be with my lovely wife. We plan on starting our own business. We have a lot of our personal objects with us. We received many wedding presents from family members and friends. We cannot keep it all in the house. I need to find place for self storage in Singapore.
We need a storage facility that can hold all of our stuff. The ideal facility would be one that has adequate and competent security. Our belongings are very valuable to us and must be protected at all times. Continue reading
I try to save money by not splurging all throughout the year on every little item that I want at the very moment that I see it. In the past, I bought all throughout the year with very little thought and quickly found myself in debt as a result. After spending years of making payments to pay back the debt, I learned my lesson. Since then, I have learned to purchase what I want during sales instead. This year, I year I plan to get a new laptop this way.
I did a search for Cyber Monday laptop deals 2014 online and found some great deals. This is a sale that occurs every year on the Monday that follows Thanksgiving day. Continue reading
I have moved to Portland, Oregon in order to pursue my dreams. I recently accepted an amazing job opportunity in the city, and it is definitely going to involve a bit of going out on a limb to move to Portland, but if this works out, then it could launch my career. I am not sure how many opportunities I am going to get to break into my career of choice. Anyway, I better find apartments in portland or that are currently available for rent. I am looking for an apartment that is pretty luxurious, as I want to make sure that my quarters are comfortable during my stay in Portland.
The last time I lived in an apartment, I got the cheapest one I could find, and it was very tiny and cramped. I will not make that mistake again, and since I expect the compensation from my new job to be fairly considerable, it seems appropriate to go ahead and rent a nice apartment. Continue reading
Right now I am paying close to 40 dollars a month, just to have two digital boxes in my house, that have DVR capabilities. It seems extremely excessive, and I am not able to get digital cable on the rest of the televisions in my house, because that would cost even more. It is annoying, and I want to make a switch. To that end, I have been browsing – http://satellitepackages.net – in hopes of learning more Direct TV and what they have to offer, in terms of the television packages that they have, and other things like that.
I am particularly curious how many televisions I am going to be able to have hooked up to the satellite dish, and how much it is going to cost, on a per television basis. I would really prefer to not pay extra, for extra televisions, because it seems like you should be able to pay for television on a per household basis, and not on a per television basis. That is the way I view it anyway.
I do like DVR, and I make use of it quite a bit. Continue reading
I got hold of this land nearly a year and a half ago, but until recently I did not have the money to build a house upon it. It took me a lot of work and a lot of scrimping and some really good luck, but I have finally gotten the money together for them to start on construction. Of course it requires a lot of planning. I have to figure out where I am going to be after it is done, like for instance how much the power will cost and what the bill for Direct TV in Westfield will cost. Obviously I have other bills to pay. In fact once I get in the house there will be less money going out every month. Getting the down payment together was a bit pain, but the payment on the mortgage will actually be a good deal less than what I was paying in rent for the apartment that I have been living in.
It is actually going to be pretty tight for me until this gets done and I get moved in to the new house. If nothing goes wrong I will be fine, but of course a lot of things can go wrong. For instance you could be going to work one morning and the transmission on your car could go out on you. That is almost sure to be fifteen hundred dollars these days. Of course there is some chance that I would be able to replace it myself, but not a great one and at any rate I would need to get the car fixed. I could go a few days improvising a way to work and back, but over the long term I can not go with no car. There are all sorts of things like that which could cripple me right now.
Turning eighteen and finally being able to move out of my parents place has been far more exciting than I thought it would be. The sensation that you experience when you know you have something akin to ultimate freedom is one that cannot be described and even if some of my concerns are only whether I should get direct tv for north carolina or not does not take away from the fact that I am now on my own and am capable of doing pretty much whatever I want. I had no idea just how much parents were actively doing to stifle my sense of self and creativity – I knew that my dad was pretty controlling but once I moved out (much to their anger and surprise) I realized just how much they tried to control the entirety of my life.

Ever since I saw the show Portlandia, I’ve been considering my choice of staying here in Kentucky. Sure, Kentucky is a wonderful place and no doubt one of the most beautiful states here in the U.S but after so many years of calling it home I’m beginning to find myself wanting something more. Portlandia might be a satire of the city of Portland but a satire holds some element of true. Already I have started to look for apartments portland or homes to rent, further inspired by a friend of mine who recently returned from a trip to visit one of her own friends in Portland. She came to me and said, “I belong there.”. Continue reading
Did you know that the American Dream has changed? Oh, yes. You might hear vicious rumors that the Dream has been dead and buried, that we have lost our way, lost the vision that our forefathers set. This grand experiment that America was meant to be has failed – or so they might say. But no, the Dream is alive and well and that Dream is for cheap internet. Yes, my friends, cheap Internet is what we Americans want more than anything. Continue reading
I have a good job working for Michigan State university (or pretty much working as a contractor for the school actually) and I have finally put together the money to build a house. I would have preferred if it had been closer to the campus, but that was not that practical of an idea. Instead I am around twenty or twenty five minutes away by car. The place sits on a nice piece of land, within walking distance of a lake. It is a house that I could affor and it has a couple of nice features. A lansing adt provider set up the alarm system for it this week and that is part of the system of smart features that I put into the design. It has a small amount of solar power and a solar water heater, in essence it is designed to be good for winter storms in Michigan. So I designed it with a back up generator big enough to run the essentials. It is in turn hooked up to run off natural gas.
Obviously if you have a real disaster it is pretty tough to get to the store to buy gasoline or diesel for a generator. So instead you fix it up so that it runs off your natural gas system. It does not run all of the stuff in the house, but it is what you need. Of course some people might need more than I need, but I just figure a couple of lights and a refrigerator and a water pump is pretty good. It is great to have all that other stuff and obviously I will be able to run a tv or a computer as well. The house has a great deal of insulation and I built it up against a hill, partly under the ground.
I am tired of living in the cold, and I have the money to do so, so I have decided that I am going to spend the rest of my days of retirement in Florida, where it is warm all of the time. I guess that they get a frost every once in a great while in some parts of Florida, but I doubt it happens in Miami, which is where I am going to move. Anyway, I am trying to find out more information about miami luxury homes that are currently on the market and listed as being for sale.
I have interested in buying a condo, because I have always wanted to live in a condo. But if I am going to buy a condo, then it needs to be a big one, that is also rather new. I don’t care if someone has lived in the condo before, as long as it is currently in good shape. But I do not want to buy a condo that is more than 10 years old, and I would prefer to buy a condo that is less than 5 years old. I have a lot of things going through my mind right now, and the thought of getting all of these done on my own, is more than a little bit overwhelming to me.
I do not want to deal with all of what is going to be involved in finding the perfect condo for me to buy. So it seems like it might be a good idea for me to get in touch with a real estate agent in the near future. That is probably the best direction to go, since they will know more about the real estate, and available condos, in Miami, than I ever could know.
I downloaded this great new app that shows me movie times based on my current location. I use it all the time. Last week I went to the movies, and I had to wait a whole hour before my movie was supposed to start. It just so happened that the theater was right next to a traditional Chinese medicine clinic. I began to read the text on the window including the URL: www.tcm-r-us.com.sg. I was intrigued. I pushed my face into the glass trying to get a look inside, but I couldn’t really see anything. I decided to go inside. I walked up to the front desk and told the friendly woman inside that I wanted to learn more about Traditional Chinese Medicine, and how it could help me. Continue reading
I am working on this summer job down here in the area of North Myrtle Beach. I brought the adjustable dumbbells with me, but I could have left them back at my apartment in Raleigh, NC. I am not needing any other means of working out. I obviously knew that roofing was not going to be a lot of fun, but I was looking to do some out of doors work and I did not think it would be too bad. If I knew how to do the job it would be better I am sure, because I am a beast of burden as it is right now. I am learning my way around the job. Continue reading
I think that my girlfriend has been talking to her ex-boyfriend again, and I need to find out if this is the case. I know that she recently ran into him, in a grocery store. But she said that nothing came of it. I do not know if that is the truth, and I am worried that she might leave me, for him. But she has a crazy mixed up past with the guy, and I don’t think he is good for her. I am looking to use a site to hack facebook account of my girlfriend, and to see if she has been talking to him on Facebook.
I know that they are still friends on Facebook, and I have tried to get her to remove him as a friend.
It is not a sure thing that they will ever call me up, but I have a lot of support in the club here. It is obviously not a full time job and at times I have been operating a taxi for Bristol. It is a bit funny that some of the time I pick up a group of people who think they might recognize me. Obviously I am the striker for the club and since I score the goals that means that I have a bit higher profile than the usual footballer at this level of the game. Of course in general the real prospects are a good bit younger than me. There are boys of sixteen who are on the team, while I am old enough to buy a pint at the pub. It is a job and I have a lot of fun just the same. I was pretty sure that I was going to be out of the game by now and so long as they are willing to pay me to play it is fine with me.
Of course the big thing is that you are a bit of a small time celebrity and that is a good bit of fun. It is not as though super models are having catfights over me in front of clubs, like they some times do over the big name footballers, but on the other hand it does not hurt you with the lasses. I have to watch out for all of the free pints I get after a good match. A couple of weeks ago we played a rather inferior side. Most of all they had lost all of their defense. The goalie was a bit of a joke and the other defenders were no better, they made me look great.
I knew that I had to get a bigger fan base on YouTube before I would be taken seriously as a musician. I didn’t harbor any fantasies that I would be the next big rock star found on the video site, but I did have enough confidence and talent to know that I could still make a decent living from my music. When I was telling a friend who is also a musician, he told me that when he needs more people, he will simply buy youtube views at socilab.
I wondered how he had so many people following him and watching his videos when we are about the same style, but I never knew that he got them that way.
I wanted to stick with a hair salon that used the aveda products I was used to back home. I was going to be here in Singapore for at least the next six months on business. That is at least six trips to the hair salon for me. It is expected in my position to look my best with my hair and clothes. That is why I am picky about the salon and the products they use. It did not take much looking for me to find the perfect salon to have my hair done in Singapore.
I chose the place that is the official salon for Miss Singapore International. They are an Aveda salon in Singapore. I can get the products I am used to using at home without having to order them online. Plus, they use the professional products such as the keratin hair treatment to restore shine and the botanical hair treatment I used to get back home. Continue reading
Growing up in a military home with parents who were constantly travelling, I can’t help but often compare my own childhood with those I found myself going to school with. For most of my life, my classmates were those outside of race and even outside my own culture. Since my parents spent little time on base, and so much time traveling due to their positions as Analysts within the United States Air force, they wanted to be able to give me a cosmopolitan experience and see the world. Perhaps that’s how I ended up looking into singapore colleges rather than returning to the United States to further my education – the few times that i had been back ‘home’, despite having only been born in the states and never actually lived in the states, I didn’t feel quite at home as I thought I should have been. Even my parents didn’t seem to enjoy themselves whenever they were actually in the states but instead were always eager to be back on the road, in the air or base.
It’s not that I dislike the United States – how could I when the Federal government has helped fund the life that I live? It has uniquely allowed me to live this life that my parents provided, through the work of the military, that I’m allowed to even consider such an exotic location like Singapore for my higher education. In all my time with my parents it is Singapore and other Asian-centric metropolitan that I fell in love with. Their richness of culture entwined with their love of theology and philosophy has drove me to embrace them as something as close to being a home that I will never have. As soon as my studies are over, I have no doubt that I will follow in my parents footsteps and enter the military to continue my global travelling.
I am not sure if it was my fault or not, but that is certainly how Anna sees it. Of course it was her apartment and I was not in much position to argue when she told me that I had to go. It was a lot of fun while it lasted and I thought it was going to be a longer term arrangement. I had to put almost of my stuff in a storage space in singapore. They are not exactly cheap though and it is just going to be a temporary solution until I find my own place. At the moment I am sleeping in my office on the floor behind my desk. I scared the crap out of the cleaning lady last night and for a bit I was afraid she was going to freak out and call the police.
To commemorate the success of my brother’s business, I decided to get a cake for him. My brother runs a company that makes custom toys for people. Whatever the people request, my brother’s company will make it, as long as it’s a certain size. My brother makes the toys with his 3D printer. The printer was a worthwhile investment for him, because it allows him to make the toys easily without a lot of work. I decided to get him a cake from www.cakeflower.com.sg in the shape of a giant 3D printer.
The cake would be a 3D cake instead of a flat one, and would have a miniature toy being printed out. The toy would be made of cake as well. I wanted every part of the cake to be edible. Keeping the cake a secret from my brother was pretty hard. Continue reading
